New Functions in GW-8 Version 2.0

Creating a User Style


• You can easily create a new Style by accessing the STYLE MAKEUP screen for an existing style, then changing the
sounds or modifying the way the sounds are produced.

• Dedicated MFX (Multi Effects) for Styles are now provided, allowing you to apply MFX to the sound of a style
independently from the keyboard performance.

• You can use realtime recording or step recording to create a new Style by recording a performance for individual
parts.

• You can now specify two or more Style parts as drum parts.

• You can use editing functions such as quantize and copy to create Styles efficiently.

• The STYLE MICROSCOPE screen lets you edit the individual notes of a Style in detail.

• You can use the EZ Convert function to create Styles easily.

Recording or Editing a Song


• You can access the SONG MAKEUP screen and easily change the sounds in a song or adjust how the sounds are
produced.

• Dedicated MFX (Multi Effects) for Songs are now provided, allowing you to apply MFX to the sound of a Song
independently from the keyboard performance.

• In addition to “realtime recording,” which records your performance just as you play it, version 2.0 provides “step
recording,” which lets you enter notes and rests one at a time. You can select the recording method that’s most
appropriate for the part you want to record.

• You can use editing functions such as quantize and copy to create songs efficiently.

• You can use the SONG MICROSCOPE screen or SONG MASTER TRACK screen to edit a song’s individual notes or
tempo data in detail.

The section “Recording and Editing a Song” in this document includes the content of the section titled “Song” in the
Owner’s Manual (p. 27–29).

Other Added Functions


• The “STYLE FINDER” screen has been added, allowing you to select a Style from a list sorted by number, name, or
tempo.

• The system pedal setting now allows you to assign BEND MODE to the pedal.

• A place for making MIDI settings related to the performance of Styles has been added to the system settings; it’s
named “SYSTEM STYLE MIDI (NTA).”

• The performance settings now provide a “Chord Zone” parameter, which lets you specify the key range for chord
detection.

Before You Compose a Style

Creating a User Style


Broadly speaking, you can create a user style in either of the
following two ways.

Editing an existing style


You can create a new User Style by changing the Tones used
in a previously saved Style, adjusting the volume balance
between parts, or adjusting the settings of dedicated Style
effects.

Creating a new style


You can initialize a new Style and then use realtime or step
recording to create the performance data for each division.
The performance data you create can be edited using the
various editing functions or the Microscope function.

You can create performance data for all divisions of a single


chord, and then use the EZ Convert function to easily create
division data for the remaining chords.

Ways to Create a Song


Broadly speaking, there are two ways to create a song.

Editing an existing song


You can create a new song by changing an existing song’s
Tones, adjusting the volume balance between parts, or
changing the effect settings.

Creating a new song


You can initialize a song, and use realtime or step recording
to create performance data for each part.
After you’ve created the performance data, you can use the
SONG MICROSCOPE function or SONG MASTER TRACK
screen to edit it.
